“I have been having French lessons with Anaïs since January 2014, and I have found her both friendly and approachable. My knowledge of the French language was very sparse, and I feel that I have learnt quite a lot during this time with particular attention to reading, writing and French grammar. Anaïs is always ready to answer and explain any questions that I may have and the lessons are informative and interesting. I would therefore, recommend Anais Language as a professional and easy way to learn French.”
“I have been taking French lessons with Anaïs for approximately 6 months. In that period, I have advanced from an absolute beginner to having the confidence to be able to converse in French. As I have little natural flair for languages, it has been a challenge at times, however, Anaïs has made the journey both easy and enjoyable. She has a very calm, patient, methodical and relaxed approach but is equally attentive and careful to ensure that the learning is tailored to meet your needs during your individual lessons. As a native French speaker, she provides the necessary authenticity, context and knowledge, moreover she possesses first-hand experience of all the necessary idioms, pitfalls, top tips and shortcuts, required to ensure that your learning can be practically applied immediately. ”
“Anaïs is a fantastic French tutor and I cannot recommend her enough to anyone wanting to learn French regardless of your current level. I have had at least 1 lesson a week with Anaïs since March last year and she has taken me from literally no French at-all to being able to communicate confidently using all the main tenses and to understand almost everything in normal conversation. She tailors each lesson to my exact needs and teaches in a relaxed, friendly environment. Anaïs encourages me to speak as much as listen and this has helped massively to increase my confidence! At school I didn’t get on with languages, now thanks largely to Anaïs I find learning French immensely satisfying and fun and am now thinking of taking DELF exams at level B1. Merci beaucoup Anais!”
“I have been having private classes with Anais for the last six months, starting from a basic beginners level. She is always friendly, clear and non judgmental. She works through her well rounded lessons at my pace. The lessons combined with a small amount of homework have improved my spoken and written comprehension of French, and I was excited and confident to try my new French skills on a recent trip to Paris. I previously tried group French classes, but have found private one-to-one tutorage has been far easier as Anais identified the areas I needed the most help and focused on them. I have also found her to be accommodating with lesson times. I look forward to my class each week and would definitely recommend Anais as a French teacher! ”
“Anais is a fabulous teacher. Her style is well balanced and well structured for the best possible outcome. I started lessons without knowing one French word and she has given me the confidence to try to speak French in my daily life. She is very patient and has a wonderful temperament that is very conducive to learning a new language. Her materials that come along with the classes are very well done as well. I would not hesitate to recommend Anais to anyone looking to learn French. If you are considering taking lessons from Anais, just say YES today! You will not regret it. She is A+++ in my book!”
“Thank you very much for giving me a great start to learning French so far. I have learnt loads of new little things to say to my girlfriend's family. ”
“I was a complete beginner. Learning French was very challenging, but I am glad that I began my French learning journey with my very patient and kind tutor, Anais. Thank you for everything.”
“I have been learning French with Anaïs now for 4 months. I started from scratch, as an absolute beginner, and during that time I learnt the structure of the language, how to form sentences, pronunciation, masculine/feminine, verbs, nouns, phrases, and more. Basically, a whole lot of stuff. As with learning anything new, the teacher is 90% of the motivation. In this, I have found Anaïs to be friendly, personable and patient. As such she provides the necessary ingredients for any student – particularly a beginner - to grow in confidence when learning this beautiful language. I can highly recommend her to you.”
“My wife and I have been doing face-to-face lessons for the last month in order to rapidly brush up our French (especially spoken) ahead of moving to Paris in a few months. Our tutor, Margot, has been very attentive and receptive to our needs. She has structured the lessons to help address a lot of questions thoroughly. We get ample time to review and practice new skills with the way the lessons are designed. Overall, this is proving to be very helpful. Anais has also been very helpful and communicative about scheduling (especially given the covid restrictions at the beginning). We are very pleased overall and thoroughly recommend Anais and Co”
“I clicked with Anais straight away. She is friendly and fun in disposition, whilst being an excellent teacher, who challenges and pushes her students. I have been an ‘on / off’ French language learner for some years. This is the first time that I have been committed and I believe that it is because, every week, I can see positive results. I know that I am learning a lot and my French is progressing well. My old bad habits are also disappearing. Anais provides structured lessons and I am surprised at how much we get through in one hour each week. My French friends have noticed the huge progress that I have made with my written and spoken French in such a short space of time. I would recommend Anais, without hesitation, to anyone who wants to learn French, properly and with ongoing results.”
“I have been having French lessons with Anais for the last 3 months and my French is coming on leaps and bounds. Anais is very thorough and precise, whilst also being extremely friendly and easy to talk to, and you never feel self-conscious if you make a mistake. She has written her own textbooks and as a result, really understands the rules of the French language, as well as all the tiny exceptions that keep cropping up. I'm nearly on to the second textbook and can't wait to find out what I'll be learning!”
“I recently had the pleasure of being taught French by Anais, and I must say, she is an exceptional teacher. :) Her ability to explain complex concepts with clarity and patience has greatly enhanced my understanding of the language. Anais focuses on practical aspects of French, which not only helped me grasp the rules better but also understand the reasoning behind them. Before her classes, I was self-learning French but often found myself lost amidst the myriad of rules. Anais proved to be a fantastic resource, guiding me through these complexities with ease. Highly recommended for anyone looking to deepen their understanding of French in a supportive and effective learning environment.”
“I am currently studying French at university, and as a native speaker, Anais has helped me hugely to improve my language skills. We have worked together through out the year to improve my understanding of French grammar, as well as on translation exercises, where I have found it invaluable to have the help of a fluent French speaker. Anais is very friendly and welcoming, and her flexibility to work on whatever suits me, and arrange classes as and when I need them has been perfect. I would definitely recommend her as a tutor!”
“Truly enjoying the learning process via the Anais and Co French courses. Currently enrolled in a group session (5 students), and although not one-on-one tutoring, it is still relatively intimate as the professor takes the time to ensure you are understanding & correct your grammar, pronunciation, etc in real time - while giving you plenty of examples and opportunities to practice across the lingual learning spectrum. Will definitely be enrolling in the next stage.”
“I have almost completed a block of 20 lessons with Pauline and didn't even think twice, purchased another block. The teaching is so structured, interesting and varied. I was initially not a fan of the idea of online lessons but Pauline just makes you so at ease and really focuses on what your personal weaknesses are to help you improve them and pushes you the perfect amount so you are challenged without losing confidence as she helps you along the way. Anais has also been so understanding and accommodating to changing my lessons whenever needed as my schedule can at times be all over the place. Most importantly, you get the most out of your money, the lessons go at a great pace to allow you to soak in the information without dragging the lessons out just waste time as some other courses I have tried do. I have stuck with Pauline because i really enjoy the lessons and like the stability of having one tutor but from what I have read it sounds like they are all great so if you're considering getting lessons I would recommend not overthinking it and just going for it!
“My French language skills had been stalled over the past year due to the pandemic and a very busy work life. Hoping to accelerate my learning, I reached out to Anais, and it's one of the best decisions I've made in a very long time. I have private lessons with Emma on a weekly basis. Not only am I finally making progress, but I'm truly enjoying my lessons as they are a favourite part of my week! Emma has been a wonderful and supportive tutor. Not only is she helping me to increase my proficiency, but she is also giving me the confidence to try my language skills with native speakers. If you are looking to either begin or accelerate your French skills, do reach out to Anais and Co. I'm so happy that I did!”
“Anais and Co, are a brilliant French tuition service that has been a very positive experience for us. Although most training providers refer new customers to a sales team or online portal, Anais contacted us directly (the same day) to understand our needs and how she could support us on our learning journey. In terms of the lesson/ teaching experience, we are very pleased with our French teacher (Imene) and her professionalism, enthusiasm, interpersonal skills which she brings to every lesson. She is consistent, adaptable and knowledgeable and we can't have asked for a better teacher. Learning a new language can be extremely challenging at times, however, Imene's excellent people skills means that she is able to make every lesson an enjoyable experience which in turn maximises our learning capabilities. 5 start customer experience!
“I've been learning French with Imene from Anais and Co for just over two months now and can thoroughly recommend - this is first-class language learning.
I was a little nervous about picking up French as the last formal learning I had was at school (and that was quite a while ago), but my tutor Imene has been excellent - the lessons are paced perfectly, I'm challenged enough to keep it interesting and exciting, and I’m managing to remember the material we cover.
I’ve tried several learning methods over the years, including audio, books, and software/apps, but face-to-face learning with Anais and Co is just on another level.
Imene has tailored the lessons perfectly; we start with a recap of the last week and then move on to the next topic. She’s patient, encouraging, understanding, knowledgeable and always happy to answer questions, it has been (and will, I’m sure, continue to be) a pleasure learning with Imene.
Outside of the lessons Anais has been excellent with communication, matching me with a tutor, and really makes the whole experience a pleasure; everything is so well organised, and the professionalism is why you’ll see so many good reviews on Google.
Do you want to learn French? Learn with Anais and Co!
“Thank you for everything you have taught us, it's been a lot of fun!”
Thom and Eva
“I always look forward to my weekly lesson with Imene to share what's going on in Paris & London, she is well informed, kind & always encouraging me.”
“Anais is an excellent tutor. Her well-structured approach and interactive method of teaching are enjoyable, motivating and effective. For the first time ever I can feel my language insecurities subsiding and my confidence and abilities grow! Merci beaucoup!”
“I am just coming to the end of a few months of one to one lessons with Anais and I've really enjoyed them. Anais is very patient, engaging and encouraging and the lessons are well thought through. Whilst very relaxed, Anais is thorough and methodical: she is focused on correcting grammatical errors and ensuring that rules are remembered but it's all done very gently and with humour. I would recommend Anais & Co to anyone wanting to learn or improve their French: I've learned a lot in a short space of time and it's been fun.”
“Bianca and Anais have been great tutors. It's a no stone unturned approach. Communication has been fantastic. Recommend.”
“I have been having French lessons through Anais and Co with my tutor Emma for a few months now and I am really enjoying it! The whole booking process has been really smooth and easy, and the sessions themselves are fun, informative and interesting. I'm learning a lot! I really look forward to my sessions as they are a great way to challenge myself and use a different part of my brain after a busy day at work!”
“I really enjoy my lessons. The teaching contents and methodology are very effective, including the notes I receive after each lesson. Also it is great that the curriculum is flexible, and adapted to my needs and level.”
“I started French lessons with Anaïs around 2 months ago and feel that I have already made significant progress under her tuition. She is very personable and patient, and her lessons are structured very well with clear targets in place. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to learn French.”
"Thank you for your patience, understand and encouragement, you have made learning French fun!”
“Thanks for having taught us French during all this time. We've been seeing you for so long now that we consider you a friend (who teaches us French)!”
Max and Kathy
“As a busy mother, I never thought I could find a way to finally learn French. Fortunately, Anais and Co has made it easy with virtual classes. My fantastic tutor, Olivier, is patient and motivating. His teaching methods have increased my confidence and I am eager to continue my lessons with him.”
“Anais, is the BEST French teacher I have ever had. I was having one to one lessons with her but I had to move to a different city. She is an amazing teacher and I am still learning French with her (via Skype now) because I didn't really want another private tutor. To be honest Skype lessons are just as fun!!”
“Anais is a lovely teacher, very professional and punctual. Her book is also very helpful for a total beginner like myself!”
“I think Anaïs is a FANTASTIC teacher and also great fun to chat to! I’m learning so much with her and really enjoy our lessons!”
“I have been studying with Anais for a few months now, in this time my French has dramatically improved, my vocabulary has grown significantly and my french speaking skills are much improved. I would have no hesitation in recommending Anais as an excellent teacher.”
“Anais is great tutor. I like the way how she structure our lessons: a bit a mix of everything (grammar, pronouncement and new vocabulary). Highly recommended.”
“Thank you very much for the precision and skill you delivered the lessons. I have enjoyed learning from you! And thank you very much for getting me to speak French!”
“I am enjoying every lesson, I would definitely recommend Anaïs to anybody looking to learn French”
“Anaïs is an excellent teacher. She is friendly and approachable and understands quickly both one's learning objectives and where one's strengths and weaknesses lie; she adapts her lessons to suit both. I highly recommend her as a teacher, both for beginners and those hoping to expand their existing knowledge of French.”
“Anais is a wonderful teacher. She is very professional and takes you along at a steady pace. It has given me the confidence to speak French when I am over there. I have no hesitation in recommending Anais to anyone that wants to learn French.”
“The lessons and the materials are both excellent. Clear, practical and also highly personable. Highly recommended!”
“Anaïs is a brilliant teacher. Her lessons are enjoyable and very well-structured. I have learnt so much from them in just a short space of time. The learning materials are also very useful and clear. Anaïs is super professional - always on time, quick to respond and very encouraging.”
“Anaïs was super professional, she was always very prompt in communications, she also set up a call before I started my lessons to gauge where my level was which was very helpful. I had all of my lessons with Margot, she's a really lovely person and was great at the lessons too. Would recommend to anyone looking to improve their French.”
“Anais has been a wonderful teacher. She has individual way of teaching regarding the student needs and skills. I can see how my French is improving from having the lessons with Anais over the year. I managed to go to the French language school only over couple of mounts studying with Anais and was having the lessons in French language only. Anais books are very easy to work with and I like how material is structured. Only the positive feelings.”
“Bianca and Anais have been great tutors. It's a no stone unturned approach. Communication has been fantastic. Recommend.”
“A fantastic lesson structure and pacing for my level. Olivier is a great tutor with good energy that he brings to every lesson.”
“Anais is a fantastic teacher. I can’t speak highly enough of her. I’ve been having an hours lesson a week for the past 9 months or so. I regularly visit France and feel the improvement every time I go. I’m not a natural linguist but the structure of teaching really works for me.”
“I really enjoyed my lessons with Anais. Anais is a good teacher and is very motivated and enthusiastic, which makes it easier to learn French. The lessons are very structured and Anais makes notes to review later, also her lesson material seems complete and structured. It can be challenging to fit the classes in my schedule, but Anais is always happy to find a solution or do a class via Skype. She seems to enjoy teaching people a new language and I would definitely recommend.”
“Anais is a very skilled and patient teacher and is able to apply her considerable intelligence to teaching in a way that elicits the best from her student. She has a very positive, cheerful demeanour and it makes the language learning enjoyable. I would have no hesitation in recommending her.”
“I start study French with Anaïs 6 month ago. I was a beginner, just knew few words in French. Now I feel confident speaking French on a basic level. Anaïs is a very dedicated to what she is doing. She adapts lessons to your needs and also she is very motivating. Her book has a great structure and make the process of learning French smooth and fun. I would highly recommend her as a tutor for any age and level.”
“Anaïs is a brilliant teacher who takes learning French from a very different perspective to most language teaching institutes. As well as teaching basic grammar, Anaïs also teaches you about the culture and traditions in France, and what to say in certain situations, which I found both interesting and useful.
She is very organised, plans lessons well and adapts them according to your personal goals. I highly recommend her to anybody wanting to take private French lessons.”
“I really enjoy our Skype lessons and think they help a lot alongside university.”
“Anais provides convenient, flexible lessons. She is extremely friendly and put me at ease with my rusty French! It is a pleasure to conduct lessons and she has helped me with conversational ability and grammar. Skype lessons have worked better than I expected! Highly recommended.”
“Anais and Co is exactly the kind of language education the modern world needs. The learning approach of Anais and her incredible teachers make it so fun and doable to learn the most beautiful but one of the toughest languages. I just finished my 3rd intensive course (which is just the beginning for me) and I enjoyed every single minute of it. So much love and gratitude to the whole team!.”
“Excellent teaching by Marina- patient, considerate, and perfectly pitched.”
“I just completed the 2-week intensive beginner course - All of the tutors I had on the course were great and it was all very professionally taken care of, I was surprised how much we went through in 10 hours total. I would highly recommend and I will be continuing to use Anais and Co for my future learning.”
“I'm enjoying the logical sequence of the course, the exercises and having the guidance of a trained native French speaker.”
“I've had a brilliant experience with Anais and Co, specifically with my wonderful instructor Apolline. She is flexible, fun to work and learn with, and open to feedback. Anais is also always super responsive via email and the experience has been super positive throughout.”
“Anais is very amazing and supportive. My tutors are fun and wonderful!! Really enjoy my learning experiences with Anais and Co xx”
“I have 12 lessons with Pauline online so far. I enjoy every minute of it!!! Pauline is always very friendly and kind, and SUPER patient. I tried French tutorials on Preply with a few tutors, but those tutors' curriculum is quite unorganised. Although I was accidentally found out about Anais and Co, I was thinking about just giving it a go since the google review is very high, and I'm glad I did. The curriculum is clear and well organised, so does the syllabus developed by itself! I highly recommend this language school and Pauline, it is worth every penny you spend here!!!”
“I started from scratch and now I'm a couple levels into ther beginner course, I can say I really enjoy the lessons and I can really see the progress. The first few lessons can be a bit slow simply because you're learning a completely new language from scratch and so you have to build a base first, but the course structure with the book alternating between grammar, vocabulary and other things then having the exercise book to go with makes it really easy to learn things and build on top of that. Definitely recommend!”
“Honestly, french lessons with Anais are the best. My tutor is honestly the best French teacher. She’s patient and funny. Honestly one the best teachers I have ever had. Definitely going to continue my French lessons.”
“Have had a great experience so far with Anais and Co - the mixture of a friendly and attentive tutor, conversation practice, focused lessons and the accompanying textbook has been very conducive to my learning already.”
“I completed a 20 hour French course with Anais Language and thoroughly enjoyed each lesson. It was a well structured programme and easy to build on week by week. After completing Beginner Level 2 I feel I have built a solid foundation and understanding of the language, with the help of my amazing teacher Emma who guided me through. I would highly recommend!”
“I have been doing french lessons with Margot every Friday for about 5 weeks now and I can honestly say she’s a delight to work with, she’s very encouraging and patient I definitely feel an improvement in my learning. And for anyone who is very shy or timid I’d advise Margot to be the teacher !!”
“Anais and Co. is an incredibly well organised and responsive school and business. It has been nothing but a pleasure to deal with them as well as my lovely tutor Apolline.”
“I had an intensive week of 2 x 2 hour lessons each day with 4 different teachers. I learnt French to GCSE level but am very much just above a beginner level. Anais was very responsive and helpful in setting up this bespoke programme . The teachers I had were all excellent and the materials clear to understand. I would recommend Anais if you are wanting to improve your French.”
“I've had a wonderful time learning French with Anais and Co so far! I've been taking weekly lessons for just about a month now and it's already really helped build my confidence in speaking the language. My tutor, Naima, is super encouraging and understanding of my skill level, catering each lesson to my personal needs. I really love the Anais and Co books, as well, and the progression of the lessons feels very natural. Anais checks in frequently to see how I'm doing and make sure I'm happy with my experience, which is lovely. Overall it's been really great and I definitely recommend it :)”
“I’ve been attending beginners French lessons with Margot and it’s been great. She’s really lovely and explains everything really well. Anais has been great over email with organising the classes. Overall would recommend them if you want to take the plunge and learn French!”
“Learning French with Margot was absolutely fantastic and I loved the personalised experience she tailored just for us!”
“I am really enjoying my weekly classes with Sandrine. She is very patient and nice. I also love how structured the classes and books are, its very easy to follow along.”
“I appreciate Anais personally responding to course signup and ongoing queries, and I'm thoroughly enjoying my lessons with Sandrine who's always patient and professional. She's always able to articulately answer any questions I have about the learning material. Investing in the lessons as well as the book created by Anais and Co has been a good return on investment!”
“I've been learning French with a tutor at Anais and Co for about 6 months and am really enjoying my experience. Anais is super helpful and always responds to my emails very quickly. She did a great job of matching me with a tutor who understands my learning needs and is friendly and patient. I also really like the syllabus as the progression of the course makes sense and gives learners practical French that is actually useful in the real world. I definitely recommend these French classes!”
“Emma is a great teacher - our lessons feel more like two friends discussing French topics and grammar! I highly recommend. She is very patient and has a good teaching manner.”
“I highly recommend Anais and her teachers. My lessons with Margot are fun and productive, structured but also adapted to my needs. I am gaining confidence in speaking French, and learning so much faster than I had been previously. Anais is very organized, efficient and very professional to deal with. It has been very worth while and I look forward to continuing”
“I have loved my French lessons every week with Marie! She is kind, patient, and always makes the lessons enjoyable while still keeping them educational.
The structure of each class is very well planned out and it is great that each lesson is followed with exercises to match so that I can always refer back if I need to. I am so glad I chose Anais & Co as the place to learn French and I couldn't recommend enough! I look forward to my French lessons every week and am excited to progress to the next level.
“Excellent organisation and teaching. Very professional and I would highly recommend Anais and Co.
“What can I say? The lessons are very enjoyable!! The thought of learning a new language was very daunting, but my tutor Sandrine made it seamless and I have learned a lot! I enjoy the style and format of the tuition and they are very patient but also meticulous to help you learn the language correctly!
I recommend Anais and Co 100% to anyone who would like to learn French!
“I've been taking lessons with one of the tutors, Emma. She is very patient and knowledgeable. I feel like the classes have good structure. She also is available on email for support between the lessons.”
“I have been studying with Anais and Co since the beginning of this year after some 15 years attempting French lessons with various methods, and can honestly say that this is without a doubt the best approach that I have ever experienced! Margot is a delight to work with, and I would wholeheartedly recommend students of any age to get in touch with Anais.”
“The communication with Anais and Co has been great from start to finish n terms of scheduling, pre-course examination, info about the pedagogy and course structure. Marie is a great teacher so far!”
“I have been working with Sandrine for 3 months now and having started out with quite a basic knowledge of French I feel much more confident constructing a basic conversation. The text books are really easy to follow and introduce new vocabulary at regular intervals. Sandrine is really patient and provides detailed feedback after every session. I really recommend Anais&Co for learning at any level as they will have a tutor for you.”
“I’m having a delightful experience learning French with Anáis. From the first moment I contacted her, she was very professional and happy to shared plenty of information regarding my course.
At the moment I’m still in lessons and I’m enjoying the pace and the knowledge that my wonderful teacher a native French speaker is offering to me.
“We've been really pleased with the service that Anais has provided - adaptable and accommodating. We've used two of her teachers, and they were both very accessible and patient, and made revising French fun.
“Anais and Co has been very helpful for me with learning to study french again. I studied french at school but has difficulty learning and understanding as I wasn’t aware that I was dyslexic. I have been able to get private lessons which has been very helpful as well as encouraging. It nice to have to one on one lessons which is helping my french and making me more confident.
“I have a fantastic experience with Anais and Co. Tutoring is easy to book and and my tutor Imene is helping me greatly with a weekly lesson. I would highly recommend Anais and Co to anyone who would like to learn French.
“Anais and team are brilliant. They have a standard curriculum based on what you want to get out of the classes (e.g reading, writing or both). This also allows you to change teachers if you want to get exposure to different teachers or any other reason without having to go over any lessons already completed. Would highly recommend them for anyone who is looking at learning, building on or mastering your French!
“Have been taking classes online with Anáis and Co and not only I am learning a lot and improving my French (written and spoken) I am also having a lot of fun!
Lessons are well thought and personalised to my needs, with a lot of material to enhance the lessons and keep me excited and motivated. Would highly recommend!
“I have had 7 lessons with Imène so far, she is a wonderful teacher and the hour always flies by! She is really encouraging and motivating and always finds interesting material to go over in the lessons, which is tailored to my job industry. I would 100% recommend Anais and Co for French lessons, the process is so seamless and professional. Thank you Imène and Anais!
“I really enjoy my French lessons with Pauline, she is an absolutely fantastic tutor and I always look forward to our weekly sessions. She is able to tailor every session to my level, which keeps the lessons interesting, fun and challenging. Anais has always been super responsive and accommodating, which is very much appreciated when things change last minute.
“I've been learning French with Emma and it's been a great experience. I started as a beginner and find the lessons engaging and easy to digest.
Before starting the lessons, I looked into many language schools but I chose Anais and Co because she works with a handful of teachers who are specially selected by her and are using her method of teaching.
“Anais and Co is a great program to learn French. Since beginning the French lessons at the end of last year Anais has been prompt with communication and very helpful.
My sister and I have been having lessons with Margot which have been and continue to be practical and enjoyable. Each lesson is structured and well supported with a book and notes. I would highly recommend Anais and Co as a company and Margot as a teacher.
“I engaged Anais to improve my schoolboy French for work reasons. From the first point of contact everything was first class - professional, efficient and flexible to my needs. I had two tutors and they were both excellent, and certainly worth the investment. I am very impressed with the service and highly recommend Anais.
“About 4 months ago I signed up with Anais and Co to improve my French, and I’m so pleased I did. Anais has been incredibly helpful and supportive and responds quickly to any queries I may have. My tutor is Apolline, and I thoroughly enjoy my lessons with her, I really look forward to them. She is very friendly and encouraging as well as being an excellent teacher. I would definitely recommend Anais and Co to anyone wanting to learn or improve their French.
“I have been having lessons with Marie Anne for 8 weeks and having been stuck in the beginner stage for many years I am delighted to be making genuine progress under her guidance. Anais is very prompt with arrangements and communication and I would definitely recommend this service to anyone.
“I've just started learning french and have really enjoyed my lessons with Anais. I've found it flexible for my needs, well structured and a good introduction to the language. My teacher has also been friendly and engaging. I really recommend.
“Highly recommend. My teacher Emma is great; she’s very professional and really friendly. The course is well structured and you will pick a lot up within a small space of time.
“Anais is a fantastic tutor. She is thorough and I feel I have learnt a lot and would thoroughly recommend her lessons to anyone
“Very structured and enjoyable classes with Anaïs. She feels with confidence. Highly recommend Anaïs & CO.
“The courses are well structured and taught based on the individual needs and learning ability. The tutors are very friendly and help you in every step of your journey towards mastering french. Definitely the best private french lessons in london. They make learning french interesting and fun.
“Celia is excellent, she is really patient correcting my accent :D
“Anais and Co have been excellent in supporting with learning French. Anais books lessons to suit me and my availability and my lessons are always an enjoyable experience with my tutor Imene. Imene makes the lessons fun while learning and makes me feel comfortable and relaxed when learning something new can be daunting. As a beginner learner Imene's teaching skills are bespoke and much better than any standardised learning app. I will continue to use Anais and Co until I have achieved fluency.
“Pitched at the right level, Bianca covers a lot in one lesson. She takes her cues for future lessons on areas that I find difficult. Useful way to continue to practice and let the learnings sink in.
“I have been working with Anais since September of 2020. Her tutors are very thorough and the book she has created is very helpful. I finally understand the language and really look forward to working with my tutors. It has been an absolute revelation as I was convinced by my teachers at school that I had no flair for languages. It turns out that is not entirely true.
If you are trying to learn French from scratch or brush up on your French I would encourage you to work with Anais and her tutors.
“An excellent organisation with knowledgeable and charismatic tutors.
“I contacted Anais and her school as I wanted to learn a new skill during the second lockdown in the UK and I had learnt french a long time ago. Anais was responsive and organised 1-1 lessons for me with Apolline. The lessons are well structured and aided by the exercise books. You can move as fast as you would like and there is always options for self study. Apolline writes up excellent notes of what is covered in class and sets tests which have helped me learn. I am looking forward to my first trip to France post lockdown where i can use what i have learnt.
“I have been thoroughly enjoying my lessons. I feel as though the books and lessons are constructive and ordered in a way that makes sense in terms of building confidence. The verbs and vocabulary are useful and have helped in terms of my ability to have basic conversations. Anais and Co were flexible in terms of finding me an instructor who can meet with me in the evenings and she’s lovely and patient. Great communication and all queries are answered promptly. Really impressed. The blocks of lessons are good value.
“Highly recommend Anais and Co. The tutors are really professional and organized, the structure of the lessons is great to build foundational skills and Anais has been great to interact with and in helping me pick a level suitable for my skills."
I've started with almost zero French knowledge. I've just knew "merci" and bonjour" :) I've attended online group classes. Anais' educational system is well structured. Both online lessons and prepared videos help to learn better. I've just finished beginner1 level. Now I can read words in French-with prononciation-, understand and say simple daily phareses. Ah, it's worth to mention, I can count in French too :) if you have a little idea how difficult it's you understand what I mean. :) Thanks Anais team and my teacher Celia :) ”
“I've tried to learn French before, but this is the first time I've felt like I'm actually making progress! I really look forward to my lessons with Marina - she's a great teacher, and the sessions are challenging yet fun.
“I have been doing a month or so of lessons with my tutor, Marie, who is excellent. The exercise and homework books are a really helpful way of learning and we spend the beginning of each lesson marking the homework and going over the corrections. I do my lessons online and I find that the format works perfectly, especially using the chat function to test what we’ve just learnt. I look forward to my lessons with Marie each week and I would recommend to anyone looking to learn French.
“I am very happy with the lessons and service that I receive from Anais & Co. Always very prompt and on time. Most importantly I find that the tutoring is fantastic and would recommend 1-2-1 to get the most out of it. Highly recommended.
“I am doing private, online lessons with Apolline and really enjoying them. She has lots of energy and very willing to veer from the course material to answer and explain anything. The lessons are fun and I look forward to them each week
“I have one-to-one online classes and I would highly recommend! The accompanying books are direct and easy to understand, and explain things in English, which is exactly what I need to learn. Classes are structured and well organised. But at the same time I find my tutor (Marie, who I would also highly recommend) is experienced and flexible enough to identify areas where I might need more revision or slowing down! Very pleased that I found Anais and Co.
“I have been taking French beginner level lessons with a teacher Marina. She is really patient and kindly accommodating with my requests during our lessons. The textbooks that I am using are designed well for students who are completely beginner like myself. All explanations are clear and easy to revise. Will definitely continue a next course.
“Excellent teachers. Very well organised and run with excellent communication. Flexible if need be and always willing to work around changing schedules.
“I enjoy the course. Both Anais and Marina are very professional, the course is well structured, the classes are easy to follow and the education material is always exceptionally explained. I highly recommend this course.
“The end to end service provided is fantastic, with top quality tutors. I've had a great time learning and can definitely see the progress in my French. Massively helpful that they are able to come to your home as well.
“I am so happy that I came to Anais and Co, from the smooth introduction, to finding my correct current level and being taught by a fantastic and approachable teacher (Emma), Anais and Co really exceeded my expectations and I recommend to all who are looking to learn or improve their french language skills.
“I studied Beginner's French under Anais and Co and have completed 6 out of 8 lessons in total. Overall, my experience with this firm was valuable. My tutor was Marianne and I enjoyed all my lessons with her.
The content and materials provided were really helpful in strengthening my basics of French. A lot of emphases was put on the pronunciation aspect which I find important, especially in a language like French. Marianne was really encouraging and patient with my pace as I find it difficult to grasp certain concepts of French.
Though I have 2 more classes, I would choose to continue with Anais & Co for the Intermediate level.
“Im having an amazing experience so far! Celia is so sweet and helpful, she points outs my mistakes in a way that doesn't hinder my confidence in learning french. I feel like i want to learn more and i have improved so much! Both Celia and Anaïs have been so gracious with my busy schedule as well making time for my lessons when I have other commitments and have to change the timings. I will definitely continue and im so happy that at-last i found a tutor and company i feel comfortable with and Im confident they will help me reach my goals in learning french !
“I am loving my french lessons with Apolline. The material is clear and easy to understand and our lessons are well structured. Apolline is great at helping me with pronounciation and understanding and adapts the pace to my needs.
“Learning French with Anaïs is a joy. Her process is easy to follow and her lessons are fun. She is kind and patient, and I’m learning the nuances of the language and culture.
As a student with rusty French from school days and bad habits from picking up phrases on holiday, it’s been great to start from the beginning again. Anaïs irons out my many inaccuracies and gives me new information and skills. I didn’t realise learning a language could be so rewarding and so enjoyable!
“I've really enjoyed my lessons - the teaching is excellent and the structure of the course is really valuable.
“I have wanted to learn french for a couple of years and having used a few apps and audio books I realised I needed guided lessons and more importantly a teacher to practice speaking with.
After searching online I came across Anais and Co, we had an initial phone call to discuss what I wanted from the lessons, motivations, and what level I was hoping to reach.
I cannot recommend Anais and Co enough! Everyone is very friendly and more than happy to help, if you have ever thought about learning a language please please get in touch with these guys, have a chat, and give it a go.
“Fantastic programme for busy beginners like myself. Anais is amazingly organised and everything is done for clients. I take Skype lessons with Marie-Anne - she is very detailed, patient and encouraging. I wanted to learn French for a while and simply did not have time during my busy work schedule but this programme and approach really works for me. I can feel how my understanding and grammar are improving and it is a real weekly treat to have French lessons live on Skype :) Books are very practical hence everything I leant is relevant to every day life. Cannot recommend more.
“I started lessons two months ago, beginning with very basic knowledge I feel I have learned a lot in the last two months. I’ve learned lots of new vocabulary and some understanding of grammar. My pronunciation and confidence has improved and it’s given me the motivation to continue learning in the future. Sandrine is my teacher and she is very warm and friendly, making me feel comfortable and not afraid to make mistakes. I highly recommend Anais and Co 😊
“I enrolled into the Beginners 1 course having limited knowledge in the French and have thoroughly enjoyed it. I have learnt so much and have a great foundation to take my studies further.
My teacher was Celia and I couldn’t speak more highly, she always took her time with each student to get the best out of everyone.
I highly recommend learning French from Anais and co.
“I have been studying French with Naima for a couple of months and she is fantastic ! Thanks to her I am learning fast and the curriculum is great as well.
Highly recommended for beginners like me *_*
“I have my classes with Apolline and she is an amazing teacher. She uses a very relaxed and friendly approach to teaching but getting the class done at the same time. She takes time out to set homework for me every week and that helps me practice it more by myself as well. Also the classes are very flexible and that is amazing for a person working full-time. A little bit expensive though.
“Absolutely amazing experience learning French with Anais and Co. My teacher is Marina, she's extremely patient and makes sure that I adopt the right pronunciation when I learn each word for the first time. The material is highly relevant to daily life conversations and adapted to the most current choice of words. I highly recommend Anais and Co if you want to pick up French as a new language, and want to learn at your own pace.
“Imene is a lovely, friendly and patient teacher. I have really enjoyed my French lessons so far and have learnt a lot.
“I have been taking one to one lessons with Anais Language for a couple of months now and the service has been excellent. Anais is proactive in checking on progress at regular intervals and feedback from my teacher, Naima, is detailed but succinct. I recommend the service.
“Loving the experience. My teacher is so nice and everything is done at the highest level. It is easy to communicate with everyone.
“A great method and personal approach.
“I have just started learning French (completely from scratch) with Margot, and she has so far been a wonderful teacher. She has made it very easy for me to practice pronunciation and the basics without feeling awkward, so I strongly recommend her. Anais has also been supportive at each step of the process from inquiring to starting with Margot. Overall, Anais and Co are a great option to choose if you would like structured one-on-one French lessons.
“If you are a beginner like me and need somewhere to learn French, I could not recommend Anais and Co enough. From the beginning, I was provided with resources and support. Any questions I had, Anais kindly answered and you instantly felt that they cared for your learning. My teacher Sandrine was lovely, supporting me and guiding me through our weekly lessons, answering all my questions and providing great resources for me to continue my learning.
“I have had a very enjoyable experience with Anais and learning the language with her has been brilliant. It’s great having one to one learning as I can relax and the whole lesson is focused on my progression. Anais is very easy to get along with and she has a great personality which helps. Compared to previous language courses or tutors I have had, this has been by far the best. I would recommend Anais to others who are looking to learn the language in a relaxed, friendly yet professional manner. Thank you Anais.
“I have been studying the beginner course over the last few months with Naima. I have had a wonderful experience and strongly recommend. I was unsure of my level as I studied french in secondary school, however, the great thing about the one on one sessions is that the tutor, in this case Naima, can cater the speed of learning to your level. We have began with the very basics and structuring sentences came surprisingly quickly. Anais is very responsive to any queries you may have and is thorough with her responses. Im looking forward to continuing the classes.”
“My husband and I wanted to improve our French for a combination of reasons. The main one being our love of snowboarding in the French Alps! We both did GCSE French but really wanted to improve our knowledge and grasp of the language. We found Anais online two years and a half ago and have been studying French ever since. Lee and I started at different levels and Anaïs has been able to accommodate this and provide balanced lessons. Happily out French has improved massively. Anaïs' lessons are enjoyable and well-paced, as well as challenging. ”
Michelle and Lee
“I attended french lessons at school a long time ago but I remember almost nothing. I have recently been holidaying in France and it is now our intention to retire there. I have been having one lesson per week for over a year now with Anais. It has been difficult for me but Anais has been very patient and understanding. She listened to my needs at the outset and has gradually taken me through a journey of learning that has been challenging but at a pace that I have been able to manage. It has been fun and although throughout the journey, at times, I have felt that I have been struggling to move forward, when I look back I can see just how far I have come. Anais has given me confidence, enthusiasm, support and encouragement to achieve my ambition. Just like learning to drive a car everything you need to know is given in the lessons but your own success is down to the practice you commit to in between the lessons, I need to do more! I really enjoy the lessons, I’m grateful to Anais for all the help, guidance and support she has given me and would really recommend her to anyone wanting to learn french in a personal way that is tailored to your own requirements and enjoyable. Thanks Anais!”
“I have had a great experience with Anaïs. Not only has she encouraged me in my learning of French, but she has also given me the confidence to apply for jobs in France and integrate into the French system. She is methodical in her approach, clear, flexible and fun.”
“I've been learning French with Anais & co for around 9 months now, and have found the experience to be incredibly helpful for levelling up my skills. My tutor, Naima, is patient and thorough, and I've thoroughly enjoyed working with her throughout the process. While there's no silver bullet to learning a language, I've found my classes to be far more effective than any other method I've tried in the past and would recommend Anais & Co to anyone who's serious about developing their French.”
“I am enjoying the one-on-one online session with Anais. I like the flexible and efficient lesson schedules. The lesson is well planned and organized with class notes and reviews written in google docs. This way I can easily review the notes on the go. Anais knows how to engage her students and made sure they learn in the most efficient way according to her student's learning style!”
“Last year I had a lovely holiday in Provence but felt frustrated at how little I was able to communicate in French. I felt determined to do better next time, so searched for some one to one French lessons in Bristol. I've really enjoyed my lessons with Anaïs. It's great to be taught by a native French speaker as she can explain all the subtleties and quirks of the language. Anaïs has a very clear and easy to follow teaching style and is always happy to answer my questions and teach at the pace I need. She is friendly and encouraging and I feel confident that I'm getting a thorough grounding in the language ready for my next holiday.”
“Anaïs took me on as a complete beginner without being able to speak any French at all. I was leaving the UK within three weeks to live and work in France for several months and Anaïs was given the task of teaching me enough French to get by. She was pushy and demanding but when I arrived in France I was able to make myself understood and build on the "emergency pack" so to speak that she taught me. I would not have been able to survive without her expertise. The French people I met were so impressed with how much I’d been taught in such a short space of time and I’ve continued to study with her since my return to the UK. Anaïs is a clever and talented French teacher with plenty of patience and understanding.”
“I started lessons with Anaïs four months ago in preparation for an extended holiday in France during 2017. I am 56 years old and my last French lesson was 40 years ago so there was a lot to learn - Anaïs pretty much had to start from scratch with me. It was great to have one to one tuition, I'm not that comfortable with speaking to a group and I believe a classroom environment would not have been suitable for me. I am amazed at how much Anaïs has taught me and how my confidence is growing. We've focussed on stuff that will help me in my day to day living in France which is perfect for me due to the short amount of time I've had to learn the language. There is homework every week which Anais will normally test me on at the next lesson - not an onerous amount but about 15-30 minutes per day. She's been great a teaching me different ways to learn, for example I struggled with memorising a list of verbs and she introduced the idea of making 'verb cards' to help. It really did make a difference. She's also a nice person to spend time with which always helps! I'd have no hesitation in recommending classes with Anaïs.”
“I enjoy going to France for my holidays and I have a friend who lives there so we mix with the neighbours and I really wanted to be able to have a conversation with them in French. My understanding of French has improved a lot since I have been taking lessons with Anaïs. Conversation is much better but still needs to be worked on. I am an older pupil and therefore take longer to learn new information, especially a foreign language. Thankfully Anaïs is a very encouraging, gentle and considerate teacher, she explains things well and she is very patient.”
“I took lessons with Anaïs because I was moving to France and wanted to get by once there. I had French lessons before but I always gave up quickly. The lessons really helped me, I gained more confidence than ever and I enjoyed learning French. Anaïs is definitely the best French teacher I have had!”
“Thank you very much for your coaching, I think it made a huge difference for me in terms of warming up and having confidence. I got the job and will be soon moving to Paris!! Thank you again!”
“I have been doing my online tutorial with Emma. She's very professional, very patient and committed to ensuring I learn and master the French language. I can say that in just a few lessons I am able to understand how the French words are pronounced, written and put together in sentences. Personally, I believe Anais methods works really well.”
“I've started face-to-face lessons with Célia in June, and so far it's been really great! The lessons are very engaging, interesting and Célia manages to cover all aspects of the language. She constructs the lesson in a way that engages listening, writing and speaking skills, which has improved my grammar, vocabulary and conversational proficiency by a vast amount! I would highly recommend Célia as a tutor to anyone looking to improve their french.”
“Anais and Co is a great place to learn French. I have been doing classes regularly for the past few weeks and already feel as though I have learnt a lot. The books that accompany the course are very well structured and easy to follow. My teacher is Amelia who is very patient, nice and a great teacher! She makes me feel very comfortable and not embarrassed to make mistakes. As well as this, she writes notes for me to look back over after classes and helps me a lot with pronunciation. Anais is also very quick to reply to emails and questions that I have and inform me of any changes to my schedule well in advance. Overall I highly recommend them.”
“Loved my classes with Marina! just the right balance between encouraging me to speak fearlessly and correcting me on the grammatical errors. Marina would also revise/expand upon a grammatical point as appropriate. It was overall simply very enjoyable :)”
“Really enjoy my lessons. My tutor is friendly and kind and explains things very well. Great to be able to learn at a pace that works for me.”
“I have been studying with Celia at Anais and Co for a couple of months. I am delighted with my progress and find the lessons enjoyable, manageable and effective! I am a beginner-intermediate with basic conversational skills but no formal teaching / terrible grammar and Celia has really helped me fill in the knowledge gaps. I have an intermediate level french exam as a goal and have confidence that Celia will help me gain the French level I need for the exam (and life!)”
“I've been taking French classes at Anais and Co since July and I'm really enjoying them. The course is very well structured - I highly recommend it.”
“I have been taking lessons with Marie-Anne at Anais and Co since beginning of July, and have enjoyed every moment of it. Marie-Anne has made the class so enjoyable and special for me that it has become one of the highlights of my week. Marie-Anne is fun, empathetic, encouraging and so supportive of my learning experience. I am lucky to have found Marie-Anne and to continue my quest for speaking French fluently with her.
I have now completed the beginners course, which I thought has been designed well and very practical. I look forward to continuing with Anais and Co and Marie-Anne as I progress to the intermediate level.
“Anaïs is a great tutor! I have been having online lessons with Anaïs for over a year and I they definitely surpassed my expectations...
My initial goal was to better understand French texts. And so, armed with patience and clear goals in mind, Anaïs took me on a journey. Not only could I keep my own pace, but I discovered my limits and managed to overcome them along the way.
Whether it is writing or speaking, she is always there to provide a gentle nod, an encouraging smile or a friendly correction if I make a mistake... In addition to using her books, which show a clear structure and guide the reader progressively towards harder notions, en amplifiant, I was pleased by the freedom I had in choosing practice materials such as French texts and French poems-ideas that came in an improvisational spirit from my part- to exercise my understanding. Whenever I asked questions about different nuances of expression, about contexts or ways of thinking more tied to the culture, Anaïs would paint clear pictures, so I would not have to return to the same questions a second time.
Anaïs adapted perfectly to my learning needs and helped me achieve a high degree of understanding of French, which greatly improved my ability to write and understand the "meaning" behind the words, as it exists in the mind of native speakers. For me, this deep and clear understanding truly matters.
Whatever your learning goals and current level , I highly recommend Anaïs!
“Anais and Co are professionals in their approach. I joined a private class. My private tutor, Sabrine combines practical examples with easy to comprehend learning materials. I have a lesson more to go at the "beginners" stage. My confidence in French is increasing. There's no doubt I am ready for the next stage and will start next month. I recommend the institute especially Sabrine 🤝
“The "Anais and Co" program is an excellent way to learn French. The approach is very practical and simple to follow especially if you are a beginner. The classes are tailored to fit my schedule which is very helpful.
Sabrine, my tutor, is excellent! She is very accommodating and patient. Her notes are comprehensive and she always takes her time to make sure i understand things before moving to the next lesson. Overall..5 stars!
“We really enjoy our French lessons with Hugo and would definitely recommend. I personally really like that the class is quite structured which makes it easier for me to learn. We have learning material, exercises, the notes of the classes which we can easily go back and review. It also helps that we do speaking practice as well as grammar and writing. Hugo is very professional, also super friendly, enthusiastic and patient. The classes very enjoyable and they take the time to understand what kind of lessons you need and what is your level.
“Absolutely recommended. An easy and stress free way to learn French. My teacher, Celia, has been absolutely brilliant. She helped me to build my confidence along with the grammar and the vocabulary, always with a smile and a very positive attitude. I could not ask for anything more.
“Learning French with Appoline in the past 5 months has been excellent. Her ability to explain with real world scenarios and additional cultural relevance makes the lessons easy to follow and adaptable. I am confident of making more progress with the lessons and would highly recommend Anais and Appoline for French language lessons.
“Excellent course materials from Anais, and personalisation from Apolline for our specific needs. Very happy with the lessons and would highly recommend.
“Vanina is a fantastic tutor - she is great at explaining complex elements in an easy to understand fashion. She is very enthusiastic about what she does, and is a great motivator. Highly recommended!
“What an amazing course, I can’t recommend highly enough. Learning a new language is tough but luckily I found Anais who publishes and sends you a really great exercise book. My lessons were online (due to COVID) with Marion. Marion is an absolutely fantastic teacher, I don’t think there is a better one in a London, she is engaging, funny and very tolerant of all my bad pronunciations.
I feel I have good foundations to build on now moving forward with my French language. If you are thinking about booking a course and Google has brought you here then just do it, don’t look elsewhere.
“I’ve been learning French with Anais and Co. with my tutor Naima since the beginning of February. I’m at intermediate level with basic conversational skills so my main focus is to start speaking fluently. I like the way the classes are structured to accommodate my needs. Naima is very patient and we have a good time learning French!
Overall the experience is great. I found the booking process with Anais and the whole approach very professional!
“I strongly recommend Anais for French lessons! The teachers are brilliant and I really believe they're helping me get one step closer to my goal of speaking French fluently. I will be taking future lessons with them. I've enjoyed my lessons with Celia and always look forward to the class each week!
“Anaïs has been amazing at developing my French language skills. As someone who had been 'self-teaching' through apps like duolingo and online systems, I hadn't realised how many bad habits I'd picked up! Anaïs has helped me to undo these mistakes, and has given me enough confidence to push towards my DELF B1 exam. She takes lessons at my pace, and adapts the content depending on my requirements, which you wouldn't get in group classes. She's also a lovely person, and I genuinely look forward to my lessons every week!”
“I learned French at school and did reasonably well at ‘O level’ (as it was in those days!), but didn’t use the language for many years after that and as a result forgot most of what I had previously known. When my wife and I acquired a French holiday property a few years ago, I decided I ought to try to re-learn the language and initially signed up for an internet course with Babbel. This helped me to get back into the language, and in particular to re-learn some of the vocabulary and grammar, but I still found conversing in French in ‘real time’ extremely difficult. My wife had been having lessons with Anaïs for a while, and had been getting on well, so I thought I would try some lessons to myself to see if I could improve my speaking ability. I explained to Anaïs what I was looking for and she was able to adapt her style of teaching to my needs as well as my level of ability in French. Our lessons focus on conversation, and Anaïs gets me to do most of the speaking, only intervening if I get stuck, perhaps with a gentle prompt or an expression that lets me know I have made a mistake, and gives me the opportunity to correct it myself if I can. After four or five months, I am really enjoying the lessons and I find that my level of confidence and ability in spoken French has increased significantly. I would thoroughly recommend her as a teacher.”
“Having lived in France for 2 years, my French quickly started to get rusty once I returned to the UK. I finally decided to do something about it and have been having lessons with Anaïs for about 5 months. Having that time once a week to re-immerse myself in the language and chat about anything and everything has really revived my skills and made me realise how much I'd missed speaking French! Anaïs is friendly, open and really easy to talk to - it feels just like chatting to a friend, except you get helpful corrections to your grammar and vocabulary along the way!”
“I was looking to have one-to-one lessons with a native French speaker mainly to improve my spoken French.
I had previously studied French to degree level and I had lived and worked in France.
However, since leaving France many years ago, I had lost all confidence in speaking French.
I like the lessons with Anaïs because we speak French 100% of the time. I find that I make more progress in the lessons because they are tailored to my needs.
Anaïs makes notes during the lesson correcting my mistakes and at the end I have a list of new words and phrases for me to learn.
What is also important for me is that Anaïs is always cheerful and friendly which makes the lessons very enjoyable and an hour with Anaïs just flies by.
It really is a pleasure to have lessons with her.”
“I enjoyed our lessons and thank you for the work that you have put into me! My French speaking has come a long way since we started.”
“I've had my share of private tutors (10+) but Celia (one of the expert tutors) was one of the best I've ever worked with. I had to up my conversational french by a certain goal date, and with just 3 months of work my skills improved significantly, just in time for what I needed. Thank you Celia and Anais!”

“Anaïs is one of the best teachers I have had. She is patient, positive and diligent, encouraging you to do your best. Not only does she provide a great environment for learning a new language (the cat being a pleasant distraction) but also she has a proactive attitude which is helpful if you struggle with some aspects of the language you are trying to learn. She quickly picks up your mistakes and teaches you the best way to avoid them. I thoroughly enjoyed the lessons and have made quick progress. I would recommend Anaïs to anyone who is eager to learn French be it for a job or as a hobby.”
“Anais is a great teacher! Pays attention to detail, adapts well to your needs, and most of all, her lessons are always fun. I'm glad I found her!”
“Anais is a superb teacher - very professional, helpful and motivating. I feel that I am making real progress and its very useful to have the post-tutorial notes (an added bonus) as a record of the main points from each tutorial”
“Anaïs is a fantastic teacher: approachable, encouraging and knowledgeable. She has helped me to achieve my targets by having very clear goals for lessons and by having my progress at heart!”
“I have been studying with Anais for a few months now, in this time my French has dramatically improved, my vocabulary has grown significantly and my french speaking skills are much improved. I would have no hesitation in recommending Anais as an excellent teacher.”
“Anais is a wonderful language teacher. I had quite specific needs in terms of what I wanted to work on, and Anais has tailored every lesson to meet them. She’s very easy to talk to and I would thoroughly recommend her to anyone, no matter their level.”
“I want to thank you so much for the past months, the lessons have been a lot of fun and it has been a pleasure to get to know you!”
“Well, this must be the easiest review I’ve ever had to give. Anaïs’ French lessons are brilliant. Thanks to the lovely Margot, I’m finally able to improve my French after years of looking for a suitable approach. I tried evening classes, online lessons and speaking to random French people - to no avail. Margot is fantastic at keeping the conversation flowing (even when I have very little interesting chat to add) and I learn new expressions every time we talk. I also really appreciate her suggestions for French TV shows and movies to watch (Dix Pour Cent - super). If there was a sixth star I would tick it. Highly recommended.”
“I found Anais very professional to deal with. My initial enquiry was dealt with promptly. They were adaptable to accommodate my schedule. My teacher Apolline was very pleasant to learn with making the classes enjoyable and instructional. Based on my experience I would use them again and recommend them to others.”
“Anais is an inspiring and dynamic teacher who has become a dear friend. Every lesson with her is a fun and rewarding experience and I would highly recommend her to students of every level.”
“Anaïs is very friendly as well as professional and supportive. She helped me a lot to speed up and get the B1 in just few months. ”
“I had been studying french with Anaïs for bit more than two years. With her help and guidance I passed the B2 level exam and after that we continued preparing for the next level, C1. Anaïs knows how to adapt the lesson to the learning style and the needs of the student, she is extremely patient and she always tries to make the lesson enjoyable and interesting. Now that I have moved to the french-speaking part of Belgium, I realise the value of everything I learnt with her. Thank you for everything Anaïs!! :) ”
“I have enjoyed our lessons and our conversations on Skype! Thanks you very much for all your time and patience teaching me French ”
“I have been having twice weekly intermediate French lessons with Anais and Co for several months, & my experience has been really great. I have lessons with Apolline & Margot who are both fantastic teachers and lovely people; the content of the lessons is very well pitched, varied, and appropriate to my level. The company is also great at working around my somewhat erratic schedule. I'd recommend them very highly.”
“The team at Anais and Co are super flexible and provide a great course to immerse yourself in all of the key lessons and topics in French. Would recommend to anyone that needed to learn French for work, or are simply looking to pick it up as a hobby. The virtual 1-1 lessons allow me to refine my conversational skills and pronunciation in the comfort of my own home and my tutor is really skilled in explaining 'the why' on how certain things are structured to help me understand, as I've found in other language courses it's just been explained as "this is the way it is", which makes it hard to understand origins and context. All in all, 5 stars for a great learning experience and service.”
“I started taking 1:1 French lessons with Anais and Co earlier this year and I have really enjoyed them so far. The classes are tailored towards my interests and I get to speak 60 – 70 % of the time which is exactly what I was looking for. Following each class, the teacher provides me with a list of vocabulary as well as suggests specific areas of French grammar that needs to be revised. For each class I either watch a video on a topic of current affairs or read an article which I summarise. I highly recommend Anais and Co if you want to improve your spoken French and become more confident!”
“I learned French for 4 years in college and decided to pick it back up again in London. Anais was kind enough to have a one-on-one conversation with me to make sure I am registered for the right level for me. Lessons with my tutor Naima have been great. I could definitely see the improvements.”
“I have been taking one-to-one French classes for a year now and have been very happy with the teaching method of Anais. My teacher Celia has been great. Each class is well split between grammar, speaking and listening. My French has improved and I can have a conversation around pretty much any subject. Anais’s book is also well done, with a lot of practical examples which are easy to learn and understand. Overall I would recommend Anais (and Celia) to anyone!”
“Anaïs has been really nice to speak with and made sure I was able to fit my lessons at a convenient time. I really have enjoyed my French lessons with Emma, who is a great teacher! She is very patient and helps with pronunciation and also takes time to share helpful tips. The classes are quite unique from other classes I have taken, as I can already see my progress! I highly recommend the classes and also Anaïs textbooks, which have great guidance.”
“Anais is a great tutor. Working with her has been absolutely wonderful. She listens closely and picks up quickly on the things I do wrong or don't know, she's kind and funny and makes learning through conversation very fun, and her practice and homework suggestions are spot on. I still make tons of mistakes but I've gained enough skills and confidence to speak French now. Really, really good tutor overall.”
“I’ve had around 25 hours of one-to-one lessons with Anais and Co this year, and would definitely recommend it. The course is smartly structured, alternating each lesson between grammar and speaking/comprehension, and the teacher is always prepared with exercises and homework.”
“I really look forward to my lessons with Anais and Co each week and it's definitely invaluable for learning French”
“Thoroughly enjoy my weekly Skype lessons with Anais. The lessons are very well structured with a great balance of new vocabulary, grammar and conversation. Anais is professional, friendly and very patient. Highly recommend the classes.”
“A terrific way to learn French, and even easier now on Skype. Anais is engaging, precise, helpful and flexible. I would highly recommend her and her approach”
“I am having a brilliant time studying an intermediate French course with Anais and Co. The course is well laid out, with very instructive course materials and exercises to complete. The tutor I have is wonderful, very friendly and is very much helping me gain more confidence in my French. I would recommend this course to anyone who wants to improve their French.”
“I really enjoy learning french with Anaïs. It’s challenging , frustrating and super fun . Thank you Anais ”
“Anais is great!! She is very professional, knowledgable and experienced. Taking lessons with her is always a pleasure and her warm and friendly personality makes the learning experience a lot more fun. Highly recommend!!”
“I have thoroughly enjoyed my French lessons with Anais! I spoke at a reasonable level but find that the regular verbal practice is crucial to increase confidence and learn idioms. Anais is very friendly and professional, and it has been a pleasure to learn!”
“Really recommend Anais and Co. Very much enjoyed the one-to-one lessons - both in person or online. Apolline is great - excellent on grammar, super patient, enthusiastic and lovely to chat with.”
“I am so happy that I found Anaïs and Co, and specifically that I found Cèlia! My French has improved drastically, but more importantly I look forward to every single lesson and I never want my lessons to end - it’s like spending time with a great, patient and fun friend who really cares about your ability to speak French! Very personalised, with a lot of effort going into each lesson (what might be an hour to you involves personalised prep for her, and it shows), but I’ve also been able to set the pace (for example more conversation some times, more grammar other times). The service generally is amazing, super organised and Anaïs (who herself is awesome too!) checks in often to see how everything is. Ive been trying to self study for a long time and have read tons of different grammar books but Anaïs’ textbook just phrased and arranged things in a way that completely made sense to me and (if you can “make sense” of French grammar) and actually stayed in my head. I could write a thesis about how good this experience is, but all I’ll say is that if you’re thinking about starting with A&Co, don’t hesitate, you’re making the right choice. J’adore ça!”
“The courses with Anaïs have helped to improve my level of Business French significantly. I have grown in confidence, broadened my French vocabulary and can now hold conversations more credibly and with more self-assurance than I could before. Anaïs is supportive, patient and always flexibile with dates and times of the lessons around my job. I cannot recommend her lessons highly enough!”
“Me and three of my colleagues had French lessons with Anais in our premises. We work with a French company and wanted to improve our French. Anais is a brilliant french teacher. She was very patient with us and her lessons are well-structured. Our vocabulary and our use of verbs have definitely improved! ”
“I have been attending lessons with Anais for close to a year to brush up on my general French and to learn business French. After a 25 year gap between GCSE French and today, to say that I was a little rusty at the start is an understatement. Anais has been very patient with me and is good at adjusting her teaching to the right speed depending on how quickly I am learning. Her attention to detail is excellent and I know that I am learning to speak the language properly. I have learnt a lot of new vocabulary over the last months and also now understand the structure of the language much better than I did before. The lessons are very enjoyable, in a friendly and relaxed environment ”
“Anaïs is a friendly and approachable tutor - I enjoyed my lessons with her and felt I progressed well. I liked the option to learn in person or via Skype (this suited my busy work schedule), and appreciated her amending some course content to suit my practical needs (eg. working in France). I hope to see her again very soon. Thank you Anaïs!”
“I have just completed 24 hours lessons with Anais and Co. - My sessions with Marina have been based on discussing different topics weekly , mainly current affairs - Marina is very professional , thorough and very well prepared - Our weekly sessions have been fun, stimulating and ,no doubt, I now feel more comfortable with my spoken french. I could not recommend Anais and Co. enough! I love the flexibility of the one to one , online basis structure - This is a very professional and well run french school .”
“Anais responded very quickly to my initial inquiry and was pleasant to talk to. She was keen to understand my aims and suggested a course of action accordingly. I was matched with a fantastic tutor, Hugo. After just six lessons I have seen a marked difference in my French speaking - my vocabulary has expanded, I am feeling more confident, and he has tailored the lessons to suit my needs and interests. I couldn't recommend him, or Anais' company, enough!”
“A really positive experience with a great tutor in Christiane - patient and supportive!”
“I'd highly recommend tutoring sessions with Anais if you want to improve your French. She kept her lessons easy, encouraging & interesting for months of tutoring me. She also took notes during the classes so that you can easily revisit your past mistakes, and anything you learned outside of the book during the lessons. She's also fun to talk with about French culture and customs. You won't regret it!”
“I have been taking lessons with Anais and Co for over a year. My main goal of these lessons was to help me maintain my level of French that I obtained while living in France for 4 years and to improve if possible. I definitely have maintained these levels (as proven by a recent trip to France) and definitely improved my underlying skills.
The tutors have been great and responsive to my requests/needs. Anais has also been lovely to work with and she is quite responsive to my requests/schedule changes.
I plan to continue my lessons into 2022!
“I have been taking French lessons with Apolline over the lockdown and it has been such a joy and brought some light into my life. I'm learning at a pace that works for me and my busy schedule. The entire team is flexible and welcoming and it's a great way for me to learn French. I would highly recommend.
“I did a lot of research before settling on a french language education provider. I came across Anaïs and when I made contact with her, I found her to be approachable, thorough and thoughtful. I explained to her what I seek to gain and we've discussed my level of french. Anaïs was keen to meet my requirements and shortly thereafter connected me with Hugo.
Hugo is a high skilled teacher who has a methodical approach. He is very focused and cares about progress. What I most appreciate about Hugo is the fact that he is quick to correct my grammar or any faults in pronunciation - something my former french teachers didn't do as well. Hugo is also very proactive with homework and finds material on areas I would like to improve at my level. I've improved massively during my work with him and I hope to continue to work with him in the foreseeable future.
Overall, I highly recommend Anaïs' services for anyone who is keen to improve their french language skills. I have not only improved, I've had a long journey before finding the right service provider for me and have been disappointed many times in the past but with Anaïs, I could not be happier.
“Excellent one-to-one lessons. Anais paired me with Hugo, a young Belgian teacher for online lessons, one hour a week. While I had reached an intermediate level with personal study, I was not confident enough to converse freely with native speakers. Within only a handful of weeks my speaking, listening and reading skills had greatly improved, and I had built up a new confidence that I was lacking before. Hugo was a relaxed but thoughtful teacher, and the lessons and suggested homework were always interesting and fun.
“I signed up with Anais a number of weeks ago to study intermediate French and an very happy with the programme to date. My tutor is Margot and she is very engaging, knowledgeable and most of all patient. My goal is to reach a reasonable level of conversational French as quickly as possible and am therefore taking a lesson each day, Monday to Friday. The course work is well structured and not overly technical. In addition, they are very responsive and happy to accommodate changes if necessary to the schedule. I would highly recommend this business to anybody keen to learn or improve their French.
“I am "re-" learning French with Anais for more than a year now. I am looking forward to the lessons each weekend and I can clearly see the improvments of my French. Anais is a great teacher and she makes the lessons fun. I can really recommend her French classes.
“Having not studied French for almost 25 years it has been a pleasure to return with Sabrine's tutoring. First of all she is alway cheerful and friendly so lessons start well. She explains things easily and clearly, is patient and is very encouraging. I very much look forward to our lessons each week and I'm finding learning easy with her. I would definitely recommend her :)
“I look forward to my lessons with Marie-Anne every week, makes french super accessible with the help of the books that break everything into manageable sections. Would highly recommend and my french has notably improved as well as my confidence. Thanks!
“If you’re looking for a company that offers you how to speak French like a native then may I suggest Anais and Co. Anais has been fantastic throughout my learning in helping me to acquire such a wonderful teacher in Apolline. Anais has also been very responsive when I’ve had questions, have needed to review my lessons or had to change my learning schedule due to the demands of my job. If you’re looking for a teacher who is warm, friendly, enthusiastic, knowledgeable and offers lessons in a fun, easy to learn manner then may I suggest Apolline. Apolline will guide you through your lessons ensuring you understand the grammar, vocabulary and sentence structures (plus all of the exceptions to the rules!) and make you put them into practice during the lesson or with additional exercises in your online learning folder. I would highly recommend this company and it’s a shame I can’t give them more stars!
“Fantastic programme which can also be tailored on a lesson by lesson basis to suit your needs ... I personally am going through the course but wanted to specifically focus and relate to my career as well as a bit of language help when travelling :) ! Anais always goes above and beyond. Hugo is a great tutor, makes learning fun and very much enjoy our weekly lessons! My french has come on leaps and bounds since under his tuition!
“I am attending French private lessons since January and i am enjoying it a lot. Anais and the teachers are very professional and available to accommodate all needs. Also, I had lessons with different teachers and when I found myself comfortable with one in particular (ie Hugo), I could keep booking my lessons always with him. Highly Recommended.
“My experience with Anaïs & Co has been excellent. Very professionally organised from the moment of enquiry onward. My tutor, Margot, has demonstrated herself to be a talented teacher able to consistently drive progress while maintaining an informal style and adapting her approach fluidly to my specific requirements.
“I’ve had weekly lessons with Anais for a year now and she is a pleasure to talk to, patient with my progress and my confidence in conversation is much improved. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to improve their French.
“Apolline is a very pro-active, enthusiastic and fun teacher who makes improving my French an enjoyable event that I look forward to each week. She is always well-prepared, follows up on questions and offers extra support where needed. Really excellent and recommended.
“My daughter has had French lessons with Anais for around 2 years. Now being 11 she is ready to continue French lessons at secondary school having learnt with Anais vocabulary, grammar, reading, and having practiced speaking with Anais. Anais is very relaxed, patient and friendly with children. She is able to adopt individual approach depending on your expectations, ability and expected pace of learning. I recommend lessons with Anais to adults and children to learn all aspects of language, to practice speaking skills or to be well prepared for GCSE or A-levels exams. ”
“Since leaving school nearly 40 years ago, I have tried to learn a foreign language on several occasions, but on each occasion, I have experienced the same problem, with the grammar and being in a class room environment I could not keep up and became frustrated and soon left the class. I have now been studying with Anaïs for almost a year and found that Anaïs offers a very friendly and positive way of teaching, working at her students pace, recognising when I am finding it difficult and spending more time, to help me understand. For the first time, I have found learning French to be an enjoyable experience and I highly recommend anybody wishing to learn or improve their French to contact Anaïs. ”
“My daughter had lessons with Anaïs for about 2 years and stopped to go to school. After our summer holidays in France this year, she realised herself that she wanted to try learning more French again and asked me to contact Anaïs. As a parent this makes me happy, because we generally push our children to learn a new language. Anaïs is a great teacher and her fun, interesting and well adapted lessons have paid off! ”
“My boys (9 and 10 years old) were absolutely thrilled with their lesson with Anaïs, which is fantastic ! They are looking forward very much to the next lessons! It’s great to see them so inspired ! Thank you very much! ”
“Thank you for teaching my 11 year old and for your enthusiasm and patience . He was really happy learning from you and liked your encouragements”
“We all really appreciate Anaïs’ brilliant teaching method. My son is incredibly enthusiastic about his French and he LOVES his lessons!”
“Anais is a fantastic French teacher! She is engaging, patient and very talented and communicates in an inspirational way. Her lessons are great !”
“I was looking for a tutor for my 13 year old son. I contacted Anais and Co and was so impressed by their pace and responsiveness. Anais listened really carefully to what our requirements were and matched our son with a teacher and programme. The results have been brilliant - both his confidence in the language and also his technical ability have improved dramatically.”
“Both myself and my 12 year old son have taken online lessons with teachers from Anais. I have been very satisfied with the quality of the teachers and I also think the private lessons are a great value compared to other options.”
“Anais&Co has the right kind of tutoring you need for an a level student, along with with all other levels. Anais is very organised, and assigns you targeted tutors for your specific needs which I think makes the difference. Shout out to Apolline!!”
“The French lesson that beyond my expectation! It is inspiration but also quite 'academic'. Anais is the third French teaching organization we used. Among the others we tried, some were focused a lot on activities which is more suitable for younger children; some were group lesson with very slow progress.
Finally we found Anais and so far so good. It is quite systematic, the teachers are good and helpful, and they are quite 'academic' or 'teaching' focused. It's also inspiration that my 10yr old never complains boring. Strongly recommend for those 10 year above who seriously want to learn a langrage.”
“My daughter is enjoying her lessons with Hugo very much. The lessons strike the right balance between conversation and grammar, and he adjusts his approach to the lessons to meet her needs. She and Hugo have a built a good rapport, and she looks forward to lessons every week. We happily recommend Hugo as a French tutor!”
“Unlike other language or learning agencies, Anais is genuine! And possibly the only genuine one we have encountered so far, which does give us hope of this rapidly changing world. Well done Anais, and please keep being you and we support you from the bottom of our hearts.”
“My 11yr old has been tutored by Anais & co for 2 consecutive years now. Her confidence in speaking French has grown exponentially thanks to her tutor who has tapped into my daughter’s interests to get her engaged and incentivise her to speak French. The lessons are fun and my daughter would not miss them for the world. Her progress has been duly noted by her language teacher at school which goes a long way to show the benefits of the weekly private lessons provided by Anais & co dedicated tutors.”
“Excellent service and excellent teaching. My 9yo son always looks forward to the lessons and his French is much improved. Very good method of teaching. Highly recommend.”
“Anais worked with my daughter a while back for her GCSE and now she wants to do a French A level. Anais must have done a fantastic job as my daughter was very unsure about French.”
“Last year I was studying GCSE French at my secondary school. After the first few months into GCSE, I found it very difficult and also really tough to keep up with everyone else. About five months before my exam, I decided to get a tutor, to help me grasp French. From the first moment of being tutored by Anaïs, I immediately started to benefit from it. Anaïs was always very calm, helpful and supportive. She would always helped me with my homework and set me extra work, to further my knowledge. Within the five months from going to Anaïs, I felt confident and able to contribute fully in my class at school. Anaïs helped me from working at level D, to getting a B in my speaking exam and an overall C in my final exam! If I hadn't had her as a tutor, I honestly think I would have failed my whole French GCSE. Thank you again, Anaïs for having made it possible!”
“Our daughter was studying for her A-level and after few lessons with Anaïs we felt that she seemed more confident and positive about her French and her ability to pass her exam.”
“Apologies this email is long overdue, I wanted to thank you so much for all the help you gave me towards my French GCSE. In no other world without you would I have managed to get a grade eight, especially a grade eight where my best section was the speaking. I am very pleased with the outcome. I have recently started A levels and I am enjoying them a lot, unfortunately I chose to not continue with French. I hope you are well, and once again thank you so much!”
“ I just wanted to let you know that Roxy had a 9 in her French GCSE. We are all delighted. Thank you so much for your help!”
“A massive thank you to you, Anais and to Apolline. Henry did extremely well and got a grade 9 for his French IGCSE. So he is absolutely thrilled!! Thank you so much again. You and Apolline have done a brilliant job considering he took the exam one year early!”
“I am in year 10 at school and I have found the lessons so useful and great to have alongside school. I have had French lessons with Anaïs for almost a year now, and she has really helped me improve all aspects of the language but particularly speaking. The lessons are lots of fun and I always learn lots. They really are a big help to prepare for GCSE.”
“Anaïs has been helping our daughter in the lead up to GCSE French. We really appreciate the support she has been giving that makes such a difference especially as tests and exams are approaching.”
“Anaïs is a real find. I have been so pleased with her perseverance and patience with my teenager, which is not always an easy task! Anaïs has a great approach to teaching and keeps me up to date with my daughter’s progress; ensuring that I know what they have been covering and setting homework to maintain momentum. Anaïs is reliable, a great communicator and a fantastic french teacher who we highly recommend, especially to get prepared for GCSE.”
“My 16-year old son needs practice during Easter school break for his ICGSE French oral exam . Anais agrees helping him on Skype despite the ad-hoc nature. So far, my son had 3 hourly lessons with Anaïs and found her very experienced in on-line tutoring. She created an online folder to capture some of my son's oral practices as well as her comments as to what to improve. He also found her very punctual and patient. My son believes that Anaïs has helped him improve his exam skills after only 3 lessons. Well done, Anaïs :-)
Anaïs is very responsive to my emails or whatapps, and she sent me brief feedbacks after the lessons, which I really appreciate.”
“Thank you very much Anaïs for your wonderful teaching, the girls have got a lot out of the GCSE lessons and enjoyed them very much!”
“Me and My sister had lessons with Anaïs for 6 months to get ready for our GCSE exam. Anaïs is an amazing and friendly teacher, we have really enjoyed our lessons! She is reliable and flexible to the way you learn. She helped us with grammar, tenses, and sentence structures and also pushed us to work on the 4 parts of the exam by setting past papers as homework. It was really nice for us to have such a friendly and knowledgeable teacher. We now feel ready for the exam! We really recommend her teaching to anyone learning French.”
Laura and Ella
“My daughter has lessons with Anaïs to get ready for her GCSE and she is really enjoying her lessons. She is getting so much out of her tutorials and her confidence is really picking up! Anaïs is a really good teacher with plenty of patience and encouragements, she explains things clearly.”
“Anais has done an excellent job of helping me both with my day to day language needs and with topics essential for my A level exam”
“Anais is a professional teacher. The lessons with Anais was great learning support !!!”
“Anais has been a tutor to my 15 year old daughter for nearly a year. Anais has given my daughter support so her confidence in French has soared. In her latest exams, my daughter scored A's in French, a huge improvement in a subject my daughter did not feel strong in before starting tutorials with Anais.
Anais has provided her with a clear structure in her lessons and a friendly, positive environment to learn in.
I firmly recommend Anais as a tutor as she has been such a great support for my daughter.”
“Anais, I am pleased to inform you that Justin has achieved a grade 7 (A) in his IGCSE French exam. We would like to give our most sincere thanks to you for all your help and support you have given to Justin in achieving this very good result”
“Thank you so much for your help Anaïs, Matt got a grade 9 (A*) in his IGCSE French exam! We are all really pleased.”
“Thank you so much for your help Anaïs, both girls had a grade 9 (A*) for their French GCSE exam! You have been amazing at developing their skills, so much that they want to take French for their A-level and would love if you could help them achieve similar grades.”
“I am reporting to say that I got an A grade in my French A level exam! Thank you so much for all your help which clearly helped make all the difference”
“I enrolled my son to help him with his upcoming French GCSE exam. We were initially with Anais for one month, but after seeing such improvement in my son's grammar and speaking skills, we decided to continue the tuition. I honestly don't think he would have been able to achieve his grade prediction if it was not for her tuition. In the run up to the exams, the bespoke speaking practise was particularly helpful and exam focused which made my son more confident when having a conversation in French”
